Peanut Butter Blondies

Some days it’s just too much effort to drag out your electric mixer, but you’re still hankering for a sweet snack.  Here’s a great recipe to bring out then:


1/2 Cup Butter,
1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 1/2 Cups packed Brown Sugar

2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

1 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Cup Chocolate Chips, or White Chips or Butterscotch Chips
1 Large or 2 Small overripe mushy bananas, (thawed if frozen), optional but really good

Melt the butter and peanut butter together, stir in the brown sugar.  Beat by hand, adding 2 eggs and the vanilla.  Stir in the flour,  baking powder, and salt.  Add the chocolate chips and mashed banana if using.

Bake in a greased and floured 13 x 9″ pan, 350*,  about 20 minutes, a bit longer if using the banana.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar if you like.
